Here are a few goodies my boyfriend and i made for friends/family for Xmas ( i know its rather late,but here they are anyway  Smiley ).we made some homemade baileys and chocolate shot glasses to have them in,eggnog,some Xmas truffles (nigella lawson's recipe), strawberry shots and candy shot glasses to go with them.as for the packaging of the bottles,i must mention i remember seeing something similar somewhere online (using plastic Xmas tree branches) and ran with the idea from there by adding little bells,and other xmassy things.

Various bottles of baileys,eggnog and strawberry shots

They are put together very nice. I had seen frozen shot glass kits, but I like the edible candy versions.

We don't have drinkers on our Christmas list anymore our I would borrow this idea for next year.

They are very creative an ingenious, especially the chocolate and candy shot glasses to go with the lovely decorated home made liqueors.

That's awesome!  You got to recycle bottles, make your presents, and they are so festive! 

If you ever had a chance, and felt like sharing, I'd love to see your recipes.  My husband makes hard cider and has made apple cordial... I've done Raspberry Cordial, Spiced Blackberry & Honey Liqueur, and Strawberry wine, but I've never tried anything like Baily's...

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

hiya!thank you for all the compliments =) and I'm sorry about the late reply,but I've only just finished my exams,yay!anyway,to answer your questions,i used silicone ice shot glass moulds for the shot glasses ( you have to make sure they're silicone or else when you try to set the me;ted candy in them ,they *will* melt )

Here's the recipe for the Irish cream:
1 cup condensed milk
1 cup single cream
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp coffee granules
1/2 tsp drinking chocolate like nesquick/galaxy or whatever you like
and of course lastly the alcohol- i would recommend adding it little by little so you get the taste just right because not everyone like it the same

of course you can tweak the recipe according to your taste as this is just off the top of my head and I'm not too precise with the measurements myself when I'm making it,i just go by taste.

I'd loooove to see your recipes for the cordials etc if you wouldn't mind sharing them  Smiley

This is going to sound like a stupid question, but what kind of alcohol?  I'm assuming Irish Whiskey, but I just wanted to make sure...
